    Got this on trade and have kept it much longer than I expected to. Ash body, imbuya top, 19mm bridge spacing, 1 7/8" nut, 34" scale, nordstrand 70s wind pickups and pre with passive mode. Big neck, great tone. Priced to sell.

    I used to own this bass before Pickles. That's a Brazilian cinnamon imbuia top. Ray said it's expensive, rare, and he only ever had enough to make less than a handful of basses with it. If I remember correctly, the bass weighed about 10lbs but had the heft of tone to back it up. That B string rings out, and the whole bass feels alive. This asking price is too generous!

    I recorded an album with it a couple years back; here's what it sounds like :

    Thanks Ricky! The bass is easily worth $2200, just trying to move it along quickly.
